Australian Bushfire Appeal

Pomio district supports fire appeal

The donations were brought over from the LLGs of Melkoi, West Pomio Mamusi and Central Inland Pomio, by Pomio District Community Development Officer – Hillary Songtava, this week.

Songtava says apart from these three LLGs, no donations were received from East Pomio LLG as they had not received any request.

A total of K5,165.80 was collected from fundraising activities in the three rural LLGs, mainly from donation boxes and letters to business houses, and a coffee night for public servants.

ENB launches Aust bushfire appeal

The appeal will feature a number of activities to raise funds for this worthy humanitarian cause.

To run for a month, Deputy ENB Provincial Administrator for District and LLG Services – Nicholas Larme, says there will be a phone-a-thon program with assistance from Telikom as well as an appeal to business houses in the province and a music concert.

Larme says the four district administrators have also been engaged to help with coordination from the districts.
